Global Defense Tactical Computers Market 2017-2021
About Defense Tactical Computers
Tactical computers are computers that are designed to support the military in their respective mission operations in the air, land, and sea domains. The three types of tactical computers are handheld, vehicle-mounted, and wearable tactical systems. The market encompasses devices that capture and measure the geometry of a physical object or an environment using lasers or light. The information captured by these scanners is known as point clouds, which are used by the software to produce 3D models for inspection or modification.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global defense tactical computers market to grow at a CAGR of 3.98% during the period 2017-2021.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Defense Tactical Computers Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global defense tactical computers market: General Dynamics, Leonardo, Saab, Elbit Systems, and Cornet Technology.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Black Diamond Advanced Technology (BDATech), Honeywell International, Kontron, Mercom Corporation, and Themis.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is lightweight tactical computers. The use of tactical computers for military purposes is gaining importance, and defense ministries across the globe are becoming concerned about the additional weight that soldiers carry on the battlefield. Soldiers carry several portable electronics, like radios, range finders, navigation systems, and computers, which can lead to an exponential increase in the total weight. This poses a challenge to the movements of soldiers and invariably affects the mission capabilities. Hence, there is an increased focus on the development of lightweight and highly portable computer systems.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is increasing number of military vehicles. One of the main drivers contributing to the growth of the global defense tactical computers market is the growing interest of armies across the globe to procure more military vehicles to ensure combat readiness of their soldiers.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is need for exposure to external environmental conditions. One of the ever-lasting requirements for any computer device to qualify from commercial usage to military purposes is the physical tensile strength of the device. This factor is a major challenge to the defense tactical computer market. Though vendors have started manufacturing rugged computers, laptops, and handheld devices, the life term of the product has remained questionable. Typically, military computers need to be able to withstand both high and low environmental conditions, i.e. anything between -40 °C to 45°C, and endure severe conditions of dust, rain, and snow.
